Think about someone you admire. A historical figure, a current person of significance, maybe even a family member. Imagine the deep richness of their life, how many valuable moments happened in all the days stretching into their past.

Imagine you could step into those days and look around. That you could pick up individual moments and learn from them. Instead of just having to absorb the broad strokes and brief summaries of their exploits, you could peek under the hood and really see how the machinery grew and changed.

Someday, someone will wish that of you. You may even wish it of yourself.

Chronicle what you do now, however mundane it may seem. It isn’t all building to something important. It is something important, right now.
